A New Year's to Remember, Part 2
"Within minutes we snagged a wahoo. While I played him Jaja doused the jib and turned us head-to-wind. When the brute was alongside, Jaja took a length of quarter-inch rope, made a large slip knot around the fishing line, then slid her make-shift lasso over the head of the fish. She worked it over the fish's body, then cinched it tight around the nub of the tail. A gaff would have been a much easier way to land the fish but we did not have a gaff. We hauled the fish aboard by its tail then wacked it on the head with a winch handle. The wahoo was five-and-a-half feet long and weighed about the same as our 6-horse Johnson outboard."
